From Academia to Industry, and back.

The world of the industry and academia can be very different, but can benefit from each others. Having a foot in each is challenging, frustrating, and extremely rewarding. Having only academic work to present can feel like having nothing at all. With a bit of outside the box thinking, it is possible to bring your university project as an asset on your CVs. I will give you tips and tricks on how to use academic work (projects, thesis…) and use them as assets instead of hiding them. I will also show you that working in academia can mean very different things, and can be considered as a career.
